Shy, sensitive, and a bit self-conscious, Anna Trent is the oldest daughter of a family of seven. When a young pastor asks Anna to marry him, she agrees despite her feelings of not meeting all the criteria for a minister's wife and feeling guilty about leaving her mother with all the work. Anna must discover that in the sight of the Lord, she truly is "a woman of worth."
